An African Dream in the Timbavati

Deep within the Timbavati Nature Reserve on a private concession, lies Motswari Game Lodge. It’s an escape from modern stresses, allowing guests to unwind and rejuvenate their soul. Motswari Game Reserve shares an open 20-kilometre boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. As a result, the game wanders freely between the two reserves, allowing for exciting game viewing activities.

Rangers and trackers guide you on game drives or bush walks and their expertise and passion for wildlife will treat you to spectacular sightings. Overnight walking safaris, an overnight stay at the Giraffe's Nest hide, and pre-lunch safari interest talks are some of the additional activities on offer. The Lodge accommodates guests in Luxury Bungalows. All Bungalows are en-suite and have air conditioning, along with magnificent bush and river views from the bedrooms.

Guests will share in the passion that the staff have for their way of life. Unwind in a traditional open-air boma or the spacious lounge, pop in at either one of the two onsite bars, or trade the beautiful view of the dam for the art gallery’s exhibitions of original wildlife art. A library, fully-equipped conference room and a refreshing swimming pool are also available. A visit to the Timbavati Game Reserve combines perfectly with a stopover in Cape Town and at Victoria Falls.
